131. Dating the Great Mahabharata War: A Previously Neglected Clue [Journals] [Kronos]
... I believe, many contemporary scholars) argue in favour of the traditional Hindu view which dates the War to 3102 B.C . Most modern scholars are inclined to place the War either in the middle of the second millennium B.C . or near the beginning of the ninth century B.C . Thus A.L . Basham writes: "Probably the War took place around the beginning of the 9th century B.C .; such a date seems to fit well with the scanty archaeological remains of the period, and there is some evidence in the Brahmana literature itself to show that it cannot have been much earlier. "( 2 ) A further clue for ...
132. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... appearance of comet Hale-Bopp had served to remind everyone that cometary impacts could be one of several possible causes of catastrophe on planet Earth. Although the Conference was restricted in this instance to one particular topic, the Society was clear in its determination to remain a forum for discussion of all aspects of catastrophism and chronology, including issues arising from the writings of Velikovsky and other later catastrophists. The question of balance is an ongoing challenge which we hope always to meet in an open-minded fashion. Getting out our publications was also another challenge which we met as well as we could with our completely amateur staff. Problems beyond our control during 1996 had led to a delay in publications but we ...
133. The Ring of Truth by Isaac Vail [Books]
... is it that the true key has not been found. Geology is yet an infant science, and I suppose is already far richer in fossil theories than all others combined. One reason for this is the fact that a man who never descended into a mine, nor slung a hammer in a quarry, can sit in his study and write an erudity treatise on the mysteries and wonders of geology, and frame a theory for the world's discussion. Great geologic questions cannot be thus solved. The true theory of the world's formation is written in the living rock and he who wields the hammer and chisel is the one who can read it. It is with no desire to ...
134. Velikovsky: A Personal Chronological Perspective of His Final Years [Journals] [Aeon]
... saying goes. In the weeks that followed I slowly digested the concentrated events of the Portland Symposium, and set to work on the correction and rewriting of the NASA Ames lecture transcript. I had yet to learn that no one rewrote Velikovsky but the man himself. The principal reason for tidying up the transcript was that I had wanted to write an article for Industrial Research about Velikovsky, but the then editor, Albert Plant, suggested something from the good doctor instead, and acquiescing to his superior wisdom thought that Velikovsky's lecture at Ames would be appropriate. The editor received a copy of the transcript, liked the flavor of it, and reserved some seven and a half pages ...
135. Radio-Carbon Dating [Books]
... assumptions: (a ) Constancy of the cosmic-ray intensity in time. (b ) Isotopic uniformity of the stabilizing active carbon reservoir. 4. `So far there is no proof... that the cosmic ray intensity has remained constant, and, however reasonable it may be, we must rank this as a pure assumption', writes J. R. Arnold.39 (Italics by present author.) It is known that the cosmic-ray intensity depends upon: (a ) The intensity of solar flares (which have produced outbursts of cosmic rays), (b ) The strength of the Earth's magnetic field (which deflects low-energy cosmic rays). `Changes of ...
136. The Jewish Science of Immanuel Velikovsky: Part One [Journals] [Aeon]
... perhaps not yet fully apparent. He has, however, had some impact: for instance, National Book Award poet Robert Bly once admitted that Velikovsky "had a great influence on my view of things", (5 ) and avant-garde composer Philip Glass wrote the music for a Velikovskian-inspired opera, Akhnaton, and hoped to get Velikovsky to write the libretto. The specific factors that concern me in this study are alluded to in its title: Velikovsky's "Jewish Science." Originally this was a euphemism for psychoanalysis used by Velikovsky's own training analyst, Wilhelm Stekel, as in his letter to Chaim Weizmann: The University in Jerusalem must now become the guardian place' of the ...
137. Philologos | The Legends of the Jews: Volume IV [Books]
... Beauty and Piety The Conspiracy Haman the Jew-Baiter Mordecai's Pride Casting the Lots The Denunciation of the Jews The Decree of Annihilation Satan Indicts the Jews The Dream of Mordecai Fulfilled The Prayer of Esther Esther Intercedes The Disturbed Night The Fall of Haman The Edict of the King THE FEAST FOR THE GRANDEES The Book of Esther is the last of the Scriptural writings. The subsequent history of Israel and all his suffering we know only through oral tradition. For this reason the heroine of the last canonical book was named Esther, that is, Venus, the morning-star, which sheds its light after all the other stars have ceased to shine, and while the sun still delays to rise. Thus ...

139. The Empire Strikes Back [Books] [de Grazia books]
... nonsense out of data presented. In addition, planet Venus probably lacks massive clouds of hydrocarbon; if so, either such clouds were never there or they burned off over time, the latter being V. s second line of defense. All in all, this was so small a bag that V., when it came time to write his address to the San Francisco AAAS meeting, ended it with the words, "None of my critics can erase the magnetosphere, nobody can stop the noises of Jupiter, nobody can cool off Venus and nobody can change a single sentence in my books." He knew that last expression was bravado, but he felt like sticking ...
... , "pseudo-science" and "Modern Art." It was indeed a golden age of quackery (as defined by the dominant societal values of the time). Besides a noted revival of interest in traditional occultist subjects (Atlantis, the Abominable Snowman, Nostradamus, astrology) and the new cosmography of Immanuel Velikovsky, there were also the writings of Wilhelm Reich and L. Ron Hubbard (whose Dianetics first appeared in the same year as Worlds in Collision), and the first flying saucer accounts, most notably those by George Adamski, who described his meetings with extraterrestrials in a series of sensational books. Not surprisingly, it was also the "Golden Age of Science Fiction ...
